Welcome back, lovely Dutchmen and women! I hope everyone is as excited as I am to be back at the U for what is bound to be the best term yet! The thing about Union College’s Unique schedule is that because we are on a trimester system (three 10-week terms vs. your “typical” two 15-week semester schedule) our spring term goes unusually late into the year (early June instead of mid-May). While it is sometimes weird/difficult to still be in school while all of your friends are done, I (and most other Union-goers) wouldn’t have it any other way. Union springs are magical — even the administration knows it! That’s why this year Union is encouraging all those bitten by the Union Spring bug to Instagram/pin about it using the hashtag #SpringatU. What are U going to add to the conversation?!
About The Author
My name is Catherine Elizabeth Ziac (Cat, for short) and I am a senior at Union College in Schenectady, NY. When I'm not studying for my major in economics or my minor in Russian, you can find me skimming through catalogs, playing the flute, fishing, online window shopping, chatting with my sisters (my twin, Julia, studying physics at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, CA, or my little sister Maddy, currently a senior in high school), or out and about in good old Schenectady with my wonderful Union friends! I love pink nails, long showers, office supplies, and going to the public library. I spend too much time looking at blogs and skimming the WSJ online, but I still believe in the merits of a hand-written letter. I am always in the mood for yogurt and granola and am never without a piece of gum. I usually answer "blue" when asked my favorite color, but I know in my heart that it's always been and always will be garnet!
